Cobras and Detective Specials had a longer grip frame than the Agent until 1966 when Colt made them all short frames.

Does anyone have a photo of what this gun is supposed to look like?
This with the exception that yours (the OP's) appears to have an earlier front sight style.

If you inherited this Colt, I'd look for or at least inquire about the shroud. Try to find it as a replacement can get pricey.
The ejector rod tip is an easy find the replacements are pretty good. These are listed as factory:

The only difference between a 1966 Cobra and a 1966 Agent is the barrel marking and the Agent did not have wrap under grips, it had a shorter style. During that time frame, they may have shared a serial number range like Detective Specials and Police Positives do.
There were some aftermarket shrouds as well sold during that time period. The only difference as I understand it is that genuine Colt shrouds have the Colt pony on them...aftermarket examples do not. The genuine Colt shrouds are more desirable and therefore a bit more expensive.
